Hi Kathie, I don't mind rain but hate the high winds, take care! Thanks for your post and for sharing your gorgeous card! I love everything about it...so beautiful. My fave thing though are your added gems and the flower, so pretty. I love DSB images. It has been so pretty here, but I know you are starting into Fall in your part of the world, do you get much foliage color there? Have a wonderful week, friend!
